Need new water inlet like this!

Our water inlet is split and leaking. Does anyone know where we can get on that looks like it, or something that would work in its place. Help!

I believe that you are likely looking for a plumbing fitting referred to as a drop elbow.

I had been considering what would be needed to re-plumb the water inlet on my Minuet -- had no idea what fitting was needed -- then discovered that it looks just like this fitting that was used in plumbing the shower in my newly remodeled home bathroom.

yeah, sometimes called a "drop-ear elbow".

They even have sharkbite one's. Just installed one on mine. you could easily take the old one off w/ a torch, and snap on a sharkbite. Hardest part is drilling new holes, as the "ears" are probably not quite in the same place...but that would be the case w/ any fitting. that part of it doesn't appear to be a "standard".

drop-ear elbow - Google Product Search

Or do a basic Google search for drop ear elbow.
Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

I found one at Home Depot, try them or Lowes or the local Ace/True Value hardware store or your local plumbing supply store.
